The inaugural Unacademy Road Safety World Series, a five-nation T20 cricket tournament, will showcase some of the biggest names in cricket from India, Australia, Sri Lanka, West Indies and South Africa.

The series, approved by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), will see former India captain Sunil Gavaskar take over as commissioner.

While the iconic Wankhede Stadium will witness the much-anticipated clash of the Tendulkar-led India Legends and Lara’s West Indies Legends in the opening fixture on March 7, the final will be held at the Brabourne Stadium on March 22.

Interestingly, other matches scheduled in Pune and Navi Mumbai are also experiencing high demand.

“The response from the people has been phenomenal and I am glad that fans are showing so much interest to come to the stadium not only to watch the legends play and but also support the noble cause of road safety that this tournament is trying to propagate,” Ravi Gaikwad, RTO Chief of Thane (Konkan Range) said.
